Default Being transferred to Western Illinois Correctional Center tomorrow

My boyfriend just phoned to say he's being transferred to Western Illinois Correctional Center tomorrow. He's a little anxious but is glad it's a medium security facility.

I can't seem to get on the Illinois Department of Corrections website so was hoping somebody would answer the following questions for me as he's phoning me back in 2 hours.

Do they allow contact visits?

Does this facility have MP3 players?

Can you get married at this facility?

Overall, what is the facility like?

I just want to give him as much information as possible so he's prepared.

Thanks
